51. One Last Thing Before I Go by Jonathan Tropper
I read this book for one of my book clubs. I did not much care for it. Silver is a middle-aged man, long divorced and a dead beat dad to a teenage daughter. After being diagnosed with a heart defect that can be treated with surgery but will be fatal without, he makes the decision that the life he’s led isn’t worth saving and decides to not have the surgery. This somehow drags his daughter and his ex-wife and her soon to be new husband all into Silver’s orbit as they try to convince him to have the surgery. Silver is a terrible character, and I am just really over reading anything else about middle-aged, white men. Period. I give it a 4 out of 10.
